Summary Utas és holdvilág Read & Download ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub á Antal Szerb Antal Szerb á 9 review Ous adventure Journey by Moonlight Utas és Holdvilág is an undoubted masterpiece of Modernist literature a darkly comic novel cut through by sex and death which traces the effects of a socially and sexually claustrophobic world on the life of one manTranslated from the Hungarian by the renowned and award winning Len Rix Antal Szerb's Journey by Moonlight first published as Utas és Holdvilág in Hungary in 1937 is the consummate European novel of the inter war peri. Self DiscoveryI m not sure how well I can review this it was the right book at the wrong time though the fact that it was able to sustain my interest for over a week when I could only manage a few pages a day speaks well for it But how much better if I could have given it the space it needswhile at the same time reading uickly enough to appreciate its grand formal arch I would have made a point of noting down Szerb s marvelous observations on life death and Italian culture though I am pretty sure that I could look now at almost any page and find something worth uoting In short I think this is probably an excellent book and regret that I was not in a position to enjoy it fullyPublished in 1937 by a Hungarian writer who was later to die in the Holocaust the novel is nonetheless not overtly political The death and displacement that it deals with are psychological rather than literal though there is a hint that the existential Angst of the central character may be the symbolic reflection of an unstable Zeitgeist Certainly you can forget the Alan Furst resonances of the title enhanced by the dark almost monochrome cover painting on the NYRB edition But look at the detail of that painting by the Spanish artist Federico Beltr n Masses I have lightened it a little for clarity and you will see what an appropriate choice it was It shows a couple in a Venetian gondola he ardent she swooning in passion it is moonlight on the Grand Canal but dark and a little sinister a Venetian Liebestod with the Church of the Salute in the background like a looming mausoleum Love and death are closely entwined in the story and the novel makes significant use of its Italian settings than almost anything I can think of And then there is that brief opening paragraph On the train everything seemed fine The trouble began in Venice with the back alleys Mih ly a reluctant businessman from Budapest in his mid thirties is on his honeymoon with Erzsi Elizabeth his wife that he has stolen from her richer first husband Erzsi prefers Mih ly because he is not like other men And indeed he is not On one of their first nights in Venice he stays out till dawn wandering those back alleys In Ravenna he tells her of his time as a young man in the thrall of a pair of sibling lovers Tam s and va Ulpius By the time they have reached Arezzo Erzsi is convinced that he is still haunted by va and she is right On one of their next train journeys Mih ly gets separated boards the wrong train and instead of rejoining his bride spends much of the rest of the book on his own visiting a number of other hill towns in central Italy and eventually winding up in Rome Szerb will continue with Erzsi s personal enlightenment as well as she journeys to Paris and thence back to Rome but his focus is Mih ly His Journey of the title is not one of a single night but lasts for months the Moonlight is a state of mental entrancement sometimes bemused delight sometimes fatalistic despair A fairer description might be the book s first epigraph taken from Villon Mutinously I submit to the claims of law and orderWhat will happen I wait for my journey s wagesIn a world that accepts and rejects me It is a uotation full of paradoxes mutinously and yet law and order the world that both accepts and rejects If such riddles intrigue you and you want to spend a few days with an author who writes in a constant state of spiritual intoxication then stop reading me and reach for the Szerb
